At last an Apple MacBook we can all afford, coming soon


Apple can certainly hit a home run with the release of the MacBook Air.

The current price tag of 13 inch Macbook Air starts from $999. A new sub-£900 MacBook Air could be a really great way to let more people enjoy the MacOS experience for less.

MacBook Air, launched by then Apple CEO Steve Jobs at the MacWorld Expo in San Francisco in 2008, has not been updated since 2015 as Apple has shifted focus towards the 12-inch MacBook and MacBook Pro. Reports claim that this affordable 6.1-inch iPhone will be launched with next iteration of iPhone this year in September.

Keep in mind that the internal specifications are purely speculation at this point and we believe that this is the closest that Apple will make the MacBook Air in that $999 price bracket.

This news comes from none other than Ming-Chi Kuo, the KGI analyst with a solid track record when it comes to Apple's upcoming releases. This is because it may have been more appropriate to describe the 2016 MacBook Pro models as faster MacBook Air laptops rather than thinner MacBook Pro laptops.

The MacBook Air was unveiled by late Apple CEO and co-founder Steve Jobs 10 years ago, but it has retained its popularity, especially among students.

According to a new report by International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Wearable Device Tracker, Apple has become the leader in the global wearables market, shipping eight million units in the fourth quarter of 2017.

The report also says that Apple will likely refresh its AirPods, and that the HomePod has been met with "mediocre" demand.
